RECORD EXPORT NUMBERS FOR FEBRUARY

Merchandise exports continue to be strong totalling $2.75 billion in February, a record for the month according to Statistics Canada.  In the first two months of 2013, exports totalled $5.58 billion, up 7.4 per cent when compared to the same period in 2012, the second highest percentage increase among the provinces.

“Saskatchewan’s economy is diverse and robust, and strong export markets are a major contributor to our overall success,” Minister responsible for Trade Tim McMillan said.  “Last year was a record year and it is encouraging to see that 2013 is off to an impressive start.”

Metal ores and non-metallic minerals totalled $531.3 million in February, up 16.9 per cent over last February. Metal and non-metallic mineral products totalled $46.9 million, a rise of 24.4 per cent over last year, and consumer goods totalled $168 million up 57.3 per cent over last February.

“We have very aggressive exporters in Saskatchewan that provide products to customers around the globe,” McMillan said.  “Companies within our province work hard to keep up with demand and as a direct result local economies are moving forward.”
